Ref.: 1911 / Ontario / York South / 47 Toronto / page 18


Lines 29 & 30 - The surnname has been corrected to "Wilby" which is what the enumerator wrote.
Line 29 the given name has been corrected to "James".

What if I find an error in the original census?
If the error is in the original census document:

- a surname note provides an alternate surname spelling and allows the members of this family to be identified in the result of a search done on this alternate spelling. When entering a surname note, indicate if it applies to the entire family or only to this individual. Also, please include the bibliographical reference to the source that corroborates the surname provided, and if applicable, add an associated note.

You will find much more information on this at Surname Notes

-for a discrepancy in the given name, gender, and/or date of birth - an online or off-line birth record link is the preferred way to annotate the correct information.

As Wilby and Wilbee have the same soundex code: W410, no alternate surname is required.
